ADT Commercial, a provider of commercial security, fire, life safety and risk consulting services in the U.S., announced today its expansion into the electronic article surveillance (EAS) market through a strategic alliance with WG Security Products Inc.
ADT Commercial will install and service WG Security Products’ EAS portfolio in the U.S., including a range of detection systems, hard tags, specialty tags, disposable labels, deactivation devices and detachers.
“We’re thrilled to expand into electronic article surveillance and offer customers another provider to consider in their search for EAS solutions, one with service excellence at its core,” said Dan Bresingham, executive vice president, commercial at ADT. “We’re proud of the dedicated team we’ve assembled, with decades of retail and EAS experience to deliver on the promise of best-in-class service, including Rex Gillette, a 35-year veteran in retail loss prevention and the EAS market.”
ADT Commercial will help customers build and maintain their current EAS solutions that utilize 58 kHz AM frequency technologies, regardless of type or manufacturer, as well as install new systems.
“WG Security Products is a trusted and comprehensive provider, and this partnership enables us to offer customers a total EAS solution,” said Rex Gillette, vice president, retail sales at ADT Commercial.
Additionally, ADT Commercial will provide remote system tuning and troubleshooting, which reduces the need for technician trips and helps customers save money.
